conversation hearts

I've never been that fond of them really, at least the taste of those familiar little Valentine candies. I do, however, find myself quite intrigued with the sayings they come up with from year to year. Who really comes up with those phrases anyway? Well, I have an entirely different take on those pastel hearts - in the form of jewelry, of course!
For the gal who has everything and realizes that flowers will not last forever, I introduce to you my conversation heart necklace...
What a cutie, huh? Now, I went with "be mine", as that is one of my all-time favorite conversation heart phrases; however, you could even consider a name or a date of importance. The necklace consists of a heart soldered to a 1/2" disc, a red coral rondelle dangle and a tag that is stamped and slightly hammered around the edges ($45 on either a 16" or 18" chain.) Ladies...put that bug in your Valentine's ear, as the big day is just around the corner!

a new design!

I have to say I'm loving this bracelet! I love it because it is perfectly classic. Who doesn't love a sterling beaded bracelet? Okay, maybe you don't; however, I'm not really expecting you to answer that rhetorical question. The nice thing about this bracelet, really one of many nice things, is that you can basically add any charm to it you'd like. I've shown it here with the original monogram (yet another classic element); however, we can add discs with children's or grandchildren's names, too! The bracelet is made completely by me with sterling beading chain, 6mm sterling seamless beads and a hefty lobster clasp. It is truly fantastic! Now, I know those of you that already have the monogram earrings or the monogram necklace are really itching to get one of these. And those of you that don't...what is the hold up? The bracelets will be made at the time of order and offered in both 7" and 8" lengths. Contact me to make yours today!!

in your own words

Well gang, I've reached 300 fans on facebook. This seems like a great reason to celebrate to me! It is funny, I still blame my old boss for getting me involved in this facebook thing; however, I find myself needing to thank him now. I've reconnected with so many old friends, stay connected with new ones and expand my little business at the very same time. How cool is that?! So, I'm thanking him (not that he'll want this necklace) and all of my facebook friends who support me by giving away a 1" sterling washer necklace stamped with a phrase of the winner's choice. What a great little gem hanging in the center, huh? So, if you're on facebook....get on over there and enter! Comments will be accepted until 5:00p.m. Tuesday with a winner announced shortly thereafter. Just think of all of those inspirational phrases for the new year that could be stamped and worn around your neck. You're tempted, aren't you? Oh, and you must stay in touch with me and my not-so-regularly-updated blog. I've got new pieces and techniques to share in the coming weeks! Have a great weekend.

Wishing you all the blessings this
new year has to offer!
